SIG volunteers help out at our booth during SC14

Did you miss the blog comments from SC14?

SIGHPC members contributed to the ACM blog from the conference.  You can still see some great comments about doing our part to promote HPC (Dona Crawford), HPC for undergraduates (Jeff Hollingsworth), the growing importance of locality (Torsten Hoefler), why HPC matters (Wilf Pinfold) and video evidence about HPC impact (John West).
